Young People at Risk in Sport (YaRiS) aims to increase participation in sport on the Central Coast by providing opportunities for families who would normally be hindered by socio-economic status to commit to a long term membership to a team.
Sport has the potential to play a positive role in relation to providing opportunities to assist youth in making positive healthy decisions in their life.
The YaRiS program is an initiative of Gosford City Council, NSW Department of Family and Community Services and Uniting Care Burnside.
It relies on the support of local sporting organisations for the success of the program.
